ARC in the DARK:  Engaging with the “Arc of the Viral Universe: A Notebook Project”

Organized by artist, Carla Rae Johnson in collaboration with Arc of the Viral Universe “Arc-ists,”  and with Studio Theater in Exile at Hudson Valley MOCA 1701 Main Street, Peekskill, NY

Interactive Event: Sunday, June 11, 2023 – 3:00 – 5:30 pm

Participants will share a real-time experience of turning and reading notebook pages via a large-scale projection in the theater. Notebook creators (“arc-sts”) will offer insights into how these notebooks illuminate their unique experience of the turbulent months of 2020/2021.

Then, just as during the early days of the pandemic, we will find ourselves in total darkness!

Participants, in turn, will use a small light to illuminate their notebooks through reading and descriptions of the imagery.  The audience will be invited to join in, sharing from a notebook they have chosen.

Notebooks created by: Karen Allen – Inez Andrucyzk – Anne E. Bruce – Jo-Ann Brody – Angela Carrozza – Laurel Garcia Colvin – Linda Cunningham – Patricia Dahlman – Maria DeLaney – Beth DeWitt – Maureen Dillon – Flori Doyle – Linda Jean Fisher – Marcy B.
